Hiring A Contractor: What Do You Want To Know?

Posted by Julia Forneris | Friday, July 31st

Hiring a contractor can be a surprisingly personal experience. After all, you are allowing someone into your house to work on your home; how much much more personal can you get? The Today Show recently posted an interview with three industry experts who explain the ins and outs of hiring a contractor.
